Hey I know that a lot of people have met or seen Mathew around town… he rides a pretty all out bike that says something about honk for bike lanes… which I think is funny cause I have a feeling he gets honked at a lot, just cause his bike has the extension cart and is a bit larger then the normal ride. SO any how he needs a roommate. ASAP to live with him in the Martineau Apartments ( still spaces available!!!) they are live work spaces and if you want more info and have missed it in the past email me and I will send it on….
Mathew (28) is looking for a working artist or artisan, who is responsible, has a steady income, chilled out on the booze, drugs, and/or crazy socializing (at home), male, around 25 years of age- although he is open minded. So if you are interested in more info about Mathew email him at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are interested in more info about Martineau, or would ike to tour the apartments, Email jenn at email@example.com
So I am going to go eat lunch and see if I think of anything else…. Nope.
